Best individual seasons in Rangers history

Chief and I were talking about this the other day, and I figured it might make for a good thread. The question we wanted to answer is "What was the best individual season by a Rangers player, by position?"

This is my crack at it:

Position Player Year GP G A P Adj G Adj A Adj P GF AF PF Notes
Center Mark Messier 1991-92 79 35 72 107 31 64 95 N/A 6th 5th 1st AST, Hart, Ted Lindsay
HM: Frank Boucher (1929-30), Jean Ratelle (1971-72)

Position Player Year GP G A P Adj G Adj A Adj P GF AF PF Notes
Left Wing Lynn Patrick 1941-42 47 32 22 54 42 31 73 1st N/A 2nd 1st AST, Retro-Rocket
HM: Vic Hadfield (1971-72), Steve Vickers (1974-75), Adam Graves (1993-94)

Position Player Year GP G A P Adj G Adj A Adj P GF AF PF Notes
Right Wing Bill Cook 1932-33 48 28 22 50 50 54 104 1st 6th 1st 1st AST, Retro-Rocket, Retro-Art Ross
HM: Jaromir Jagr (2005-06), Rod Gilbert (1971-72), Andy Bathgate (1958-59), Bryan Hextall (1941-42)

Position Player Year GP G A P Adj G Adj A Adj P +/- Notes
Defense Brad Park 1971-72 75 24 49 73 23 50 73 62 1st AST
HM: Brian Leetch (1991-92), Ching Johnson (1931-32), Harry Howell (1966-67), Doug Harvey (1961-62), Sergei Zubov (1993-94)

Position Player Year GP W L SO GAA GAAF SV% SV%F Notes
Goalie Henrik Lundqvist 2011-12 62 39 18 8 1.97 5th 0.93 4th 1st AST, Vezina
HM: Dave Kerr (1939-40), Eddie Giacomin (1966-67), John Vanbiesbrouck (1985-86)


Some commentary:
* The Rangers, historically, are very thin at LW
* RW, on the other hand, is extraordinarily deep
* Bathgate and Cook had several seasons that could make HM
* 1971 Park vs 1991 Leetch was very close for me
